    Post 27 sponsored nine young men from Middlebury Union High School to attend Boys State in 2015 and they attained a significant amount of the leadership positions while attending.

AMERICANISM / CHILDREN & YOUTH:
At the annual Department Convention in July 2014 Post 27 garnered all the awards for both Americanism and Children & Youth.  Additionally, Post 27 was awarded the National Children & Youth Award.  This is a reflection of all Post 27 does for the community day in and day out.  It is something to be truly proud of.

MEMBERSHIP:  Dues $35  as of July 1, 2015
Membership in Post 27 is going down each and every year as many of our older members pass on to Post Everlasting.  It is not that there are no eligible individuals out there.  Virtually all of our National Guard and Reservists are eligible for membership.  We all have to work together to keep our post strong.  Each member is a recruiter so do your job and talk up the legion and refer new members.  If you know of someone who would be eligible let us know.  Call the post at 388-9311 with the contact information and we will do the rest......Please Help......

NOTICE:
Help is desperately needed for Bingo on Wednesday evenings and for the Honor Guard.  There is a high potential for both of these important functions being discontinued due to the lack of help and support.  The bingo is a major source of funding for the annual scholarships awarded by the Post, SAL, and Auxiliary.  One Wednesday evening every four weeks or so would be a great help and ensure that our weekly bingo continues. 


COFFEE:
The Post has a single cup coffee brewer which is now at the bar with various types of coffee available for your enjoyment and convenience.


BENEFITS CALCULATOR:
There is now an online benefits calculator for veterans on the Legion web site.  Go to http://www.legion.org/benefitscalculator/


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BINGO JACKPOT IS NOW $1,000 PER STATE
